The story begins with a social media post announcing the commemoration for a childhood friend. This triggers Eva's memories of her 13-year-old self and her friends Pim and Laurens, who led her astray with their bad behaviour and vicious schemes.

Veerle Baetens' directorial debut takes us into the toxic confusion and cruelty of adolescence. It's a poignant coming-of-age story that will stay with the viewer for a long time.

Belgium, 2022, 90 min., drama, spoken in Dutch.
